Subject: Mesmerizing Decadence
The 18th Century French novel is written as a series of letters, and so it takes a little time to really get into the spirit of the story. At that point...well... Martin Geeson and Availle bring their twisted characters to life, most memorably. Elizabeth Klett, one of my absolute favorite readers, is even overpowered by these two. This makes sense, as she portrays their victim. One of their victims, I should say. The entire cast is excellent!

Well Done!
